Sometimes I just sit quietly reflecting for a while imagining your voice, your face, your warm and loving smile. For it’s so lovely to recall the happy times we had when you played a special role as both, husband and dad, and at this very special time I only wish you knew that I’d give all the world today for one more hour with you, but I still have my memories and since we’ve been apart, it comforts me so much to know that you’re right here in my heart
